Mccartney Steals Bono's Wardrobe

Former Beatle SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY took a jacket intended for BONO to wear during their 2005 Live 8 duet without his permission. The U2 frontman was stunned to see the former Beatle sporting his clothes when they teamed up on stage for Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - but was too starstruck to demand it back. He says, "(MCCartney) asked our wardrobe person whose it was, and she says, 'Bono's, he's wearing it today.' And (MCCartney) says, 'No he's not. I'm wearing (the jacket).' "Now, I'm used to being the big guy, but not in front of a Beatle. I went out in a denim jacket instead."

steal is a pretty harsh word. I sure wish the media would get back to just telling the facts instead of trying to make everything sound worse or more sensational than it is. Bono didn't mind, he was in awe of Mccartney who is an icon even to someone like Bono. What the media is afraid to say anything about Mills because she may sue them so they start trying to bash McCartney. Long may they rock.
